As Duke gets ready to launch the debut season of the Mike Elko era, the Blue Devils are faced with an uphill battle. After a sizable backslide the last few years, Duke is in a bit of a hole; however, there’s at least good off-field momentum as Elko builds an encouraging 2023 recruiting class. With 25 commitments (!), Duke has a borderline Top 25, at the moment.
On the field, Duke will need to figure out which quarterback — Riley Leonard or Jordan Moore — will work to parter with star wide receiver Jalon Calhoun.
